The Take

Among three games tipping off simultaneously on Wednesday at 20:30 CET, ASVEL Lyon Villeurbanne (2-3) hosts Artland Dragons Quakenbrueck (1-4), looking for a sweep of their regular season series after winning 64-70 back in Round 1. Belgian champion Telenet Ostend (2-3) will look to get back to its winning ways when it hosts newcomer JDA Dijon (4-1), which has yet to lose a Eurocup road game. Dijon beat Ostend 72-63 earlier this season. FoxTown Cantu (1-4) welcomes unbeaten Herbalife Gran Canaria Las Palmas (5-0) to Italy. While Cantu hopes to build on last week's home win, the visitors can qualify for the Last 32 with a win.

Telenet Ostend
"It is a very important game for us against a team who now start to show their quality. Dijon is a very balanced, organized and well coached team. For sure we need to be 40 minutes on a high level on both sides of the court if we want to win this game."

Ostend downs Dijon for its third win

Ostend got back to the winning ways and into the hunt for a place in the Last 32, defeating JDA Dijon 80-71 on Wednesday. Ostend improved to 3-3 record in Group B, while Dijon dropped to 4-2, and neither team holds a tiebreak advantage since the game in Round 1 finished with a 9-point Dijon win. In this game, the hosts took control with a 26-5 run which bridged the first and second quarters, and taking 40-23 halftime lead. Margin reached 24 points in the third, but Dijon rallied, however, the visitors never got closer than 7 points the rest of the way. Mateusz Ponitka had 17 points for Ostend, John Prince scored 15, and Quentin Serron netted 13 on 3 of 4 from the long range. For Dijon, Andre Harris also had the line of 13 points on 3 of 4 from downtown. Kris Joseph scored 13 points, too, and Erving Walker had 12 in defeat.

For Dijon, Andre Harris also had the line of 13 points on 3 of 4 from downtown. Kris Joseph scored 13 points, too, and Erving Walker had 12 in defeat.

Dijon grabbed an early lead behind a three-pointer from Steven Gray, and a pair of baskets from Joseph, including a layup-plus-free throw for 8-14. But Jared Berggren and Prince got Ostend going defensively, each with a block, and both players contributed on the offensive end – Berggren had couple of baskets, and Prince scored 7 points, including a basket-plus-foul, as Ostend took 22-19 lead. A run continued in the second quarter, during which the hosts did not allow a single basket for more than 7 minutes. Meanwhile, Prince sparked a 12-0 run that had six different scorers for 34-19 margin. Jacques Alingue snapped the drought with a pair of dunks, but Ostend answered on each with a triple – first from Prince, then from Serron – and took 40-23 lead into halftime.

The hosts got a triple and a fastbreak layup from Wes Wilkinson at the start of the third quarter, before Ponitka made it 49-25 with a three-pointer of his own. Back-to-back triples from Harris and Walker during a 0-8 run cut the deficit, but Ponitka hit another triple for 54-34. Baskets from Zach Moss, and triples from Erving and Aldo Curti helped Dijon to get within 59-46 after three quarters, before Prince with a basket-plus-free throw and Serron with a triple made it a 17-point affair early in the fourth, 65-48. But with tiebreakers in mind, there was no giving up in Dijon. Joseph strung together 6 points, including a three-pointer, and Gray hit another one from downtown for 68-57. A triple from Harris got Dijon within 70-62, and below the magic 9-point margin. Ponitka had a dunk, Harris answered with a layup, before a triple from Pierre-Antoine Gillet extended it to 75-64. Harris hit a jumper for Dijon, and after free throws on both ends, his three-pointer made it 78-71. But Ponitka answered with a layup to round out the scoring, and leave the margin at 9 points, same as it was in Round 1 in Dijon.

"Congratulations to my players on winning this game. We played a great team tonight. Dijon is a quality team that only lost one game so far in the Eurocup on a last second play against Gran Canaria. We all showed our ability tonight and that made me happy because some of my players were lacking confidence. The first half we played great defense and were able to control the rebounds. The second half we continued playing well, but they made some great shots, shooting 8 of 12 on three-pointers. I am happy with this win and this puts us completely tied with Dijon on point difference."
